Overview

In just two months we have identified technological capabilities of our client's diverse fleet of barges and pushers and created POC of an inland shipping management system. Thanks to the walking skeleton approach, we were able to proactively respond to all challenges and risks faced during the duration of the project.

Goal

The main goal of the project was to find a solution that quickly and efficiently provides a live position of every unit in the diverse fleet of barges and pushers, and enables efficient communication between the crew of the unit and the company's headquarters.

Solution

We used OpenLayers - an open-source JavaScript library for displaying map data - to build a system using tiles provided by MapTiler, a mapping platform designed for quick publishing of zoomable maps online. The tiles' style has been redesigned to fit our client's requirements, with a goal of increasing clarity of the river map, by removing landscape parks, green areas and everything else that was unnecessary for inland shipping management purposes.

Tech challenge

Deutsche Binnenreederei's diverse fleet consists of modernized pushers (equipped with engines integrated with CAN bus) and pushers that have not been modernized and cannot be integrated with any modern telematics device. Additionally, the fleet also includes river barges that do not have their own source of power.

Because of these vast differences between the fleet units, it was necessary to explore their technological capabilities to choose the solution that would let us reach the goals of the project.

Our answer

Our software solution was integrated with hardware produced by Transics - a leading provider of hardware technology for the transport fleet operators.

Before choosing a partner, we have conducted an extensive research to find a hardware provider that would cover the needs of a diverse range of transport units. Transics' solution was chosen as it can be fully integrated with our system and can be standardized using the API protocol for an easy and effective communication.

Data processed by our system

  • Speed, direction and coordinates of the unit
  • ID and name of the unit
  • Activity status
  • Daily fuel consumption
  • NFS messages
  • Engine's speed

 

  • Transit depth
  • Engine's temperature
  • Date of the last measurement
  • Dimensions of river objects such as bridges, viaducts and locks
  • River roads
  • Communication records with the fleet's crew
